Getting Started with Elementary STEM for Classroom Teachers (with Naomi Meredith)

BRAND NEW TO STEM INSTRUCTION?Or - have your tried implementing STEM projects in your classroom but find it results in chaos? (you’re not alone!)Then, allow me to introduce you to Naomi Meredith - former classroom teacher turned K-5 STEM coach.Naomi knows the feeling of overwhelm all to well when it comes to STEM instruction.  After accepting a position as a STEM coach, she was thrusted into a new building, a new STEM classroom — and given NO curriculum.But along the way, Naomi has learned a thing or two (or ten!) about what makes STEM instruction successful in the elementary classroom, and she’s here to share her expertise with us.  Her role not only includes teaching over 500 students in her school, but also leading professional development and co-teaching with teachers to help them integrate STEM & Technology.With over a decade of experience along with a M.Ed. in STEM Leadership and STEM Certificate, she helps teachers world-wide navigate the best practices, strategies and tools out there. She truly believes that any teacher out there can learn how to use STEM & Technology in their classrooms effectively. And, I had the honor of picking her brain about all things STEM - and you get to eavesdrop in on our conversation.FOR COMPLETE SHOW NOTES VISIT: & Resources Mentioned in the EpisodeGrab Naomi’s FREE K-5 STEM Year Long plan HERE!The Elementary STEM Coach Podcast:Episode 4: Welcome to STEM Survival CampEpisode 6: Managing Your Makerspace in the ClassroomAfter the Fall by Dan SantatNaomi’s Favorite Timer for Classroom ManagementConnect with Naomi Meredith: WebsiteInstagram, TikTok, Twitter & YouTubePodcast: The Elementary STEM Coach
